Automated Liquid Filling Machine: An Overview

The use of liquid filling machines is not new to the packaging industry. These machines play a significant role when it comes to making the overall packaging process easier and simpler. Some of its applications are water, oil, syrups, ketchup, shampoo, etc.


Traditional methods of filling contents into bottles or other containers were quite time consuming and expensive. And why wouldn’t they be? Labors used to get hired and still there was a lack of accuracy and speed. With the advent of automated machines, both the demerits were removed, and today, the process has become quite better.

With the help of an automated liquid filling machine, the jobs of filling and capping can now be done in a more systematic and synchronized manner. Such machine comes with a user-defined volume selection menu that allows the desired volume to be filled into the containers.

Working of an automated liquid filling machine: A brief note

Most of the automated filling machines are enabled with detection sensors. Bottles or containers are kept in the holders that are further fixed to the conveyors. The sensors detect where the bottles are placed in their respective holders and thus, the filling process gets started.

Once the bottles are detected, they start moving to their desired places with the help of a motor placed on the conveyor. After that, the sensors on the pumps switch on that signals the pumps to fill the bottles.

This is just a short note on the working of an automated filling machine. The process of your machine may vary depending upon the technology it is based on.
